I'm going to have to agree with Leonard here. PDFLib would probably be
an ideal choice for an PDF generation library to use here. Also, why are
you doing this through an import/export mechanism? Doing it via
inheriting the Graphics class and then printing the document to that
graphics class seems like it would make a lot more sense, at least to
me. But then again, what do Leonard and I know about PDFs? ;-) I've been
meaning to do a PDF export plugin, but I've always been afraid that it
might infringe on my NDA with Appligent.
